|Wood craft work|
I did like the crafty wooden animals and creatures. looked real nice.
|The small mountain town was famous for their apples|
Indeed we tried out an local apple pie and their type of apples that can be found in the zone and as already advised – the taste was completely different.
|Apple liquor, compotes and teas|
All from a farmers market. Although the prices was pretty high and main reason not to buy the nice bottle as a souvenir/gift.
|view from a top of mountains|
At one point we realized that we have mistaken and we had to go back, as we couldn’t see anything looking like a cathedral.. But still, the view from the up was worth the hiking and the sun was shining upon us – nothing to not enjoy!

|Explorer number 2|
We went back down and there it was – a nice, big sign of the Cathedral.
|Forest and nature is the answer|
along the path to our destination were put some nice sayings and thoughts. This one was saying: ” You will find more in forest than in the books. Tress and rocks will teach you things that no teacher will tell you”. San Bernardo.
|a place to rest and enjoy the nature|
This bench was in a such a nice place – cathedral behind you and a spectacular mountain view in front of you. Just feel like sitting, resting and enjoying the moment.
|Cathedral from up|
*Located in Bergamo in northern Italy, the Cattedrale Vegetale (the Green or Plant Cathedral) uses trees and branches to create a cathedral-like structure at the base of Mount Arera. The five-aisle basilica gets its structure from 42 columns, formed by weaving more than 600 chestnut and hazel branches around 1,800 fir tree poles, the branches curving at the top to form the arches. 650sqmetre cathedral remains an evolving structure.
